Talking Screen Resolution


I was using screen resolution 1024 x 768 when I was using Windows XP.

Now I'm using Red Hat Enterprise 5.1
Here the screen resolution is 800 x 600

I want to use 1024 x 768 in RHEL 5.1
but there is no option for this resolution.

I can select only 800 x 600 or 640 x 480

Can't I use 1024 x 768 in RHEL 5.1

Those two options are the default resolution options.
If that is all you see, you need to go to the monitor
tab and select a different monitor driver. If
you can not find one for your monitor, select a generic
flat panel (or CRT) that matches your desired resolution.

This should give you more options to choose from. If
it does not, try selecting a different video card drive.
